hi mamas. i have a little 4am insomnia because i think i've been sleeping for about a day and a half now. except it is kind of like nursing a baby when you get woken up every couple of hours for vitals.
this shizzle hurts!!
and well, i am a wimpus. i shed a few tears before the surgery -- i've never had surgery and i was 'so wishing this weren't happening to me right now!! i got a severe stomachache after dinner on thursday and thought i had food poisoning. i puked 5 times and was just in so much pain. like my stomach was full of hot coals. doug was kind of poo-pooing it like it would just go away and he fell asleep after midnight. when i was still awake at 2am writhing around in pain i went downstairs to tell him i was going to the ER because i couldn't go on like that. i drove myself just hunched over. it was thankfully empty but it still felt like it took the half-life of uranium to get me into a bed. when the doc started pushing around my stomach the really sore part was down low on the right. all the pain had been up high in my stomach though. so i wondered if this was an appendix prob. CT scan and yes. so i called doug and he called M (my old boss) at 5:30am. she came over to be with the kids so he could be with me. and then A our babysitter came for a while. AND she texted me that she cleaned the house too so i am completely
we had plans to go out last night so thankfully i had 3 bottles of pumped milk in the fridge. and i think i have some more in the freezer. he'll take formula if he's super hungry.
i was SOOO worried about ebin waking up while i was gone but doug said he went down after a bottle 2x. and i hope this night is going as well too. doug brought the boys by yesterday evening for a half-hour or so but ebin is so grabby. and doug was so tired i hope he managed to get the boys in bed by 7:30
doubtful. but he is getting a really big 'welcome to my world' i have to laugh a little
isaac seemed ok. want to hear the wierdest thing? i ordered him some books through scholastic at school and we read the last one for the first time thursday at bedtime. it was madeline. i hadn't read it before but she gets her appendix out. <insert twilight zone music>
i am *dying* for a shower and have an itchy rash all over my stomach from whatever chemical they wiped it with. i feel like i'm asking for a lot of pain meds but jeebus it hurts :/
mcsarah - i don't know if you go to pmc anymore for call but i'm on the same floor as maternity
i guess i will go home tomorrow. the surgeon was very funny when he was telling me about the procedure and possible risks. he says 'its a wonder we get anyone out of here alive'
but the appendix was the only thing inflamed so it was really straightforward.
i think i can't sleep because i am s.t.a.r.v.i.n.g. i guess i should try to sleep again though.
it is so weird to be away from my boys. and i am soooo glad my mom is coming. i am not going to be able to lift ebin very easily for a few days i 'm sure.
